How Muse Works Effortless + effective

Your brain constantly generates electrical impulses when you’re thinking, sleeping or even relaxing. These impulses can be detected from outside your head.

Muse uses technology that doctors and scientists have employed for more than a century to detect your brain signals from outside your body the same way a heart monitor measures your heart rate. It is reading and recording signals from your brain.

Muse then gives you a steady flow of feedback on your smartphone or tablet.

The Science The benefits of a mindfulness practice

Muse Brain-Sensing Headband

The scientific evidence is clear on the benefits of building a focused-attention practice: reducing stress, increasing focus and improving heart health. It’s like an exercise routine for your brain. Benefits include:

  • Lowers stress which in turn reduces levels of cortisol, your body’s stress hormone
  • Strengthening the area of the brain related to composure and empathy
  • Helping improve emotional intelligence, productivity, and motivation

6 Easy Steps To Relaxation The Muse device works so simply - just 6 easy steps!

Close your eyes and listen to Muse guide you through a peaceful focused-attention session. As you do the exercises you hear the sounds of the beach with waves lapping on the sand and an ocean breeze blowing. This sound reflects the state of your brain from moment to moment.

Learn as You Relax

If the sounds are peaceful and quiet then your mind is calm and focused. If the sounds are louder and more intense then your mind is wandering and distracted. Learn to keep the winds calm and you are learning to keep your mind calm.

What does a brain sensing headband do?

Muse uses 7 sensors to detect and measure your brain activity. This activity is converted into information you can track on your tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth.

Why would I want to use Muse?

Managing stress is the first step to creating a stronger connection to the mind and reaping longer-term benefits including improved concentration and composure. Physical and cognitive wellbeing is important but if your emotions are controlling you, your wellbeing is undermined. Muse helps you manage stress so it doesnít get the better of you.

Why is Muse better than other brain fitness tools?

Most brain fitness focuses on the intellectual side: memory, concentration and attention using timed games and exercises to improve your brain's performance. Muse integrates the intellectual and emotional for maximum effect. Other brain training apps score you at the end, but often with no personalized options or suggestions to help you to improve your score the next time. An end score is like getting the number of calories burned or total steps at the end of an exercise. Otherwise, you have no idea how effective you were at meeting your fitness goal.

What makes your brain sensing headband different?

Muse is the only brain sensing headband designed with you in mind and for everyday use. The Muse headband is well-designed to be comfortable and is made with flexible materials to adjust to different head shapes and sizes. It includes 7 sensors: 5 on the forehead and 2 specially designed SmartSense conductive rubber ear sensors, for comfort and clear, consistent signal quality.

How does a brain sensor work?

Museís brain sensors detect the spontaneous activity of neurons in your brain. Your brain generates electrical frequencies that are detected using electroencephalography (EEG) sensors along the surface of the scalp.

The medical community has used EEG technology since the early 1920s. However, recent advances in sensor technology now make it possible to offer EEG in an easy-to-use and mobile form.

What types of brainwaves does Muse measure?

Muse detects a full range of brainwave activity. Brainwaves are typically broken up into five bands and Muse detects all five bands. The five bands are:

Delta waves which are most present during sleep.
Theta waves which are associated with sleep, very deep relaxation, and visualization.
Alpha waves which occur when relaxed and calm.
Beta waves which occur when, for example, actively thinking or problem-solving.
Gamma waves which occur when involved in higher mental activity and consolidation of information.

How do I know this isn't a mind control device?

Taking your pulse might tell you how fast your heart is beating, but cannot change or alter your heart rate. A heart rate monitor might tell you how active your body is but canít control your heart, and canít tell you to go jogging.

Muse works the same way by providing real time feedback on how your brain is performing. Muse is powered by you and by the energy of your mind. Brainwaves travel from the brain to Muse, but Muse cannot channel any input into the brain.

Can this read my mind?

No. Muse can only tell the type of brain activity youíre experiencing, not what you're thinking about.

What is included in the box?

One Muse headband, a micro-USB charging cable and the User Guide are included in the box. The first app, Calm, can be downloaded, free of charge, from Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

Is Muse a medically certified device?

Muse is not a certified medical device.

Can Muse be used to help with conditions such as ADD, ADHD, or seizures?

At the present time, InterAxon's in-house research is focused primarily on brain fitness applications and helping the broadest number of people with the issue that has the most impact on their daily lives: reducing stress.

What kind of sensors do you use, and is there gel required?

Muse is designed with dry sensors, and does not require gel.
